Chihuahua, Mexico Low German Dialects in Kansas
Link type: language examples
Remark: Since the early 1990s, Low German-speaking immigrants have been moving to southwest Kansas from the State of Chihuahua in Mexico. These immigrants are Old Colony Mennonites who came to Mexico from Manitoba early in the 20th century. Researchers at the University of Kansas have begun to gather Low German dialect samples from these immigrants as part of the Linguistic Atlas of Kansas German project. These sound samples are selected translations from the Atlas of Kansas German Questionnaire. They are in mp3 format. The informant is a female Mennonite Low German speaker.
